Prince Dead: Music Icon Dies At 57

Prince is dead. The music icon was 57.

Prince, born Prince Rogers Nelson, died at his Minnesota estate on Thursday. Police were called to his Paisley Park mansion around 9:45 a.m. local time for a medical emergency at the on-site recording studio, but deputies discovered the fatality upon arrival. The Carver County Sheriff’s Department initially did not publicly identify the singer as the victim as they waited to notify his next of kin.

There were “no obvious signs of trauma” on Prince’s body when it was found in his Minnesota home, Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson said Friday in a press conference on the singer’s sudden death at age 57.

He added that "there is no reason to believe at this point that it was a suicide."

The coroner performed an autopsy on the star’s body Friday morning, but office spokeswoman Martha Weaver said the results “may take several weeks.”

Never cared much for Prince or his music,
though 1999 was a good one -
what a fool, overdosed himself to death
after doing it 6 days earlier.
A millionaire with everything to live for,
what a waste..................

I am feeling my age here.
Never heard any of the songs.
Never got into his thing...confused him with Boy George and a few others...
Resent gov't buildings oohing and ahhing over him like he was something great, discovered a cure for cancer or something.
Besides which, we do not have the gov'ts applauding our servicemen...our students...our artists, poets, etc..

Senator Fulbright got a bare mention despite all the work he did after WWII for foreign exchange students....oh, he got a tree planted in DC today. Never mind the other programs he put into place...

In fairness to this man, do we know IF Prince might have died of the N1H1 flu that was so rampant last few years?
Respiratory problems?
Because of the size of his estate being reported at over 300 million dollars, could he have been poisoned?
I had read he had seen a doctor on Wednesday as he was not feeling well at that time....
Could this be anther Michael Jackson?

Yes, he does play some mean guitar! It seems that Prince doesn't get enough recognition for his crazy good abilities on many instruments. I love, love, love Prince's music. His music feels like an invitation to have some fun in whatever form one finds their fun. Artistic, creative, provocative, envelope pushing...Prince.

Raspberry Beret (cover, original not available)


Cream (original)


Little Red Corvette (cover, original not available)


When Doves Cry (original)


Kiss (original)


Purple Rain (live performance)


He belongs to the Ages now... R.I.P. Prince.

You may or may not have heard that when Prince's only child died at the age of seven days, a week later Prince went on Oprah and didn't say his son had died. Poor guy. Crying or Very sad

http://www.eonline.com/news/34703/prince-s-son-died-of-natural-causes

Then, days later, he gave Oprah Winfrey a televised tour of Paisley Park. The former Prince Rogers Nelson told Oprah his child was a boy and showed her the baby's playroom--but the baby was conspicuously absent. When Oprah asked about the boy, the veteran rocker answered cryptically: "We have a long way to go; there will be many more children..."

i always thought Prince was a little weird. but i liked some of his songs from the 80s. i guess with any entertainer, especially big name singers that we grew up with, they're all getting older, and one by one they will all leave us eventually. they will have their fans, and their critics. people who liked their songs, or didn't. people who thought they were weird, people who didn't think so.

it is a shame that Prince died so young. he should have been around a lot longer.

his family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Prescription Drugs Found With Prince at the Time of His Death

A law enforcement source confirmed to CBS News on Wednesday that prescription drugs were found in Prince's possession and at his home at the time of the music icon's death.

The source also confirmed that the local sheriff's department has contacted the DEA about assisting with the investigation, though the Midwest Medical Examiner's office has not released any information about the singer's autopsy, which was performed on Friday, including whether or not toxicology reports indicate that drugs played a role in Prince's death.

Did Prince Predict His Death? Haunting Song Lyric Goes Viral as Sheila E. Says She 'Knows' How He Died

As we wait for the results from Prince's autopsy, the music icon's longtime collaborator, Sheila E., tells ET she has her own theories about his death.

"In my heart I already know," Sheila E. said when asked if she wanted to know the cause of Prince's death.

However, the singer refrained from going into detail about what she believes happened.

"I can't share," she said simply.

Following Prince's death last week at the age of 57, there has been a tremendous spike in album sales from his catalogue, and one song in particular is leading some to question whether Prince predicted his own death decades ago.

The haunting track is called "Sometimes It Snows in April" from his 1986 album, Parade.

"Sometimes I wish life was never-ending," Prince sings. "And all good things, they say, never last."

In an eerie coincidence, the song was first recorded on April 21, 1985. Prince died on April 21, 2016.

While "Sometimes It Snows in April" has drawn attention for when Prince died, another song, "Let's Go Crazy," is being talked about for where he spent his final moments.

The singer was found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota, where medical personnel was unable to revive him. Elevators and death are key themes in "Let's Go Crazy."

"And if the elevator tries to bring you down//Go crazy. Punch a higher floor," Prince belts out on the dance track.

Prince died without a will, six siblings likely to share fortune (Video)

By Alex Dobuzinskis and Jill Serjeant

Music superstar Prince left no known will when he died last week, his sister said in court documents on Tuesday listing his six siblings or half-siblings as heirs to a legacy estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars.

The sister, Tyka Nelson, asked that a special administrator be appointed to handle Prince's affairs and that she be appointed to probate his estate.

In documents filed in a state court in Carver County, Minnesota, Nelson listed herself and five other siblings or half-siblings as Prince's heirs but gave no value of his assets or debts.

Prince, born Prince Rogers Nelson, was married and divorced twice. Under Minnesota law, Prince's assets are likely to be split evenly between the siblings, according to attorney Stephen Hopkins.

The value of his music catalog alone has been estimated at over $500 million, according to Prince's first manager, Owen Husney. That included potential licensing rights for film, TV, commercials and videogames that Prince rarely exploited, Husney said last week.

Concerns Over Prince's Estate Show Why You Need a Will

Tobie Stanger and Mandy Walker
Consumer Reports


April 27, 2016

Over the years many celebrities have provided cautionary estate-planning lessons, and Prince, who died last Thursday at age 57, is another example.

Born Prince Rogers Nelson, Prince died without a will, according to court documents filed yesterday by his sister, Tyka Nelson. He's not alone—approximately 56 percent of American adults do not have a will, according to the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils.

The lack of a will could cause big complications for Prince’s financial estate, which is worth an estimated $300 million, according to media reports. It could also lead to big headaches for his potential heirs.

According to court filings, Nelson’s petition listed her and five half-siblings as heirs, and asked the court to appoint a special administrator for the estate because no personal representative had been appointed in Minnesota, where Prince lived, or elsewhere. Minnesota law treats surviving half-siblings the same as full siblings, raising the possibility of a drawn-out family battle.

However, someone could still come forward with a will or trust document. When Michael Jackson died in June 2009, his executors filed a will six days after his death.

Prince 'was diagnosed with AIDs six months before he died and refused treatment because he believed God would heal him'

Prince contracted HIV in mid-90s but condition developed into AIDs six months ago, anonymous sources have claimed
Artist 'did not get treatment because he thought God would heal him'
Pop super-star had been preparing to die for some time, it is said
By the time he died Prince weighed just 80lbs, sources have claimed
Purple Rain singer also rumored to be addicted to painkiller Percocet

"....The 57-year-old weighed just 80lbs by the time of his death and had been 'preparing to die for a little while', the supermarket tabloid says sources told it.

A source, who was not identified by the Enquirer, said: 'Doctors told Prince his blood count was unusually low and that his body temperature had dropped dangerously below the normal 98.6 degrees to 94 degrees.

'He was totally iron-deficient, very weak and often disoriented. He rarely ate and when he did, it all came right back up.

'His face was yellowish, the skin on his neck was hanging off and the tips of fingers were a brownish-yellow.'...:

"....A statement by those close to Prince following his death said he died of influenza, an infection that would likely have proved fatal if his immune system had been decimated by AIDs. ..."

"....An employee at the Walgreens that served him said: 'We were all just shocked that he came in last night looking so beat. We said: "We are praying for you."'

'He said, almost under his breath: "Maybe if you prayed for me a year ago it’d be different right now." Then he waved and said thanks anyway.' ....."

From reports I have read, he had many sexual partners, both male and female.
I imagine there will be many claims against his estate... JMO.

Prince's Paisley Park: Locksmith Drills Into Secret Vault as Sheriff Seals Search Warrant


ETOnline

Sophie Schillaci 1 hr ago

The investigation surrounding Prince's death continues.

The District Court of Carver County in Minnesota has issued an order to seal all findings from a recently-issued search warrant into Prince's Paisley Park Studios, where the 57-year-old superstar died last week. The results will be unsealed following any criminal proceedings or 180 days from the April 28 filing, whichever occurs first.

Meanwhile, an eyewitness tells ET that a locksmith was spotted at Paisley Park on Wednesday. According to local media in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the locksmith was hired by Bremer Bank, the recently appointed special administrator of Prince's estate, to drill into the singer's secret vault.

The vault is said to house Prince's original recordings, many of which have never been released.

if this article is accurate, you would think that would prompt him to get himself a will. "just in case".

and especially with his net worth, wouldn't you have a will by this point, in case you got hit by a bus or something?

nobody lives here forever, we all go at some point. wouldn't you want to make sure your assets were taken care of?

especially if they were close to $1,000,000,000!!!!

the article i posted says he had a secret vault. maybe he has a will in there?

if not, i say he was cray cray for not getting a will.

i wouldn't mind having .1% of that.

and for the math challenged , .1% would be $1,000,000.
for every $10 that he has, he gives me a penny.

heck, i'd even take .01%, that would be $100,000.
for every $100 he has, he gives me a penny.

APNewsBreak: Investigators look at overdose in Prince death


Associated Press

ERIC TUCKER, AMY FORLITI and MICHAEL TARM

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose and whether a doctor was prescribing him drugs in the weeks before he was found dead at his home in suburban Minneapolis, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The official said that among the things investigators are looking at is whether a doctor was on a plane that made an emergency landing in Illinois less than a week before Prince died.

The law enforcement official has been briefed on the investigation and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The official said investigators are also looking into what kind of drugs were on the plane and at Prince's house in suburban Minneapolis

 And now it begins... the sharks smell the blood in the water and start circling. Well, DNA  diagnostic centers will hit pay day here...

I would have thot he would leave a bulk of his estate to his church, too. He was not married, in a committed relationship, etc..
Maybe, church and employees? Other band members?
Law suits ahead... People he has never heard of, not spoken to in 30 years, distant family members... and the attys get rich.

And it starts...

AP Exclusive: Prince's 'Purple Rain' coat is up for auction


".....CALABASAS, Calif. (AP) — A rare piece of movie memorabilia from Prince's 1984 classic film "Purple Rain" is hitting the auction block.

Prince donned the black and white blazer with leather sleeves while riding a motorcycle with co-star Apollonia Kotero.

"It's definitely the most important piece of screen-worn Prince clothing that's ever come up for auction," said Joe Maddalena, president of the Calabasas, California-based auction house, Profiles in History. "This is a signature piece of wardrobe worn from an iconic movie in his most famous role."

The coat is a unique find from the typically reclusive artist, who was found dead last week at his Paisley Park complex just outside of Minneapolis.

"Prince memorabilia in general, it just really doesn't exist. It seems like he controlled it all," Maddalena said. "This is the first time ever for something like this, and it might be the only time because the rest of the costumes may be in his (personal) wardrobe."

The original seller said her sister, a makeup artist, received the piece from Prince after they worked together on "Purple Rain."

The June 29th auction will also include costumes from Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys and a Swarovski crystal studded glove from Michael Jackson's 1992 Dangerous world tour.

Maddalena said he believes the "Purple Rain" blazer will be the "star of the show" and expects it to sell for much more than the asking price, $6,000 to $8,000....."

Prince's sister 'stormed out of meeting about his estate'

Bang Showbiz 6 hrs ago

Prince's sister Tyka Nelson reportedly stormed out of a meeting with the singer's siblings about his estate.

The 'Purple Rain' singer passed away earlier this month and Tyka has been granted the right to be executor of the estate, after it was revealed her brother never created a will for his assets, reputed to be worth around $300 million.

Tyka, Prince's younger sister, met brothers Alfred and Omarr in Minnesota to discuss the singer's estate, but after a two-hour meeting in which Alfred expressed his frustration at Tyka's decision to exclude him from Prince's memorial service, a row erupted, according to TMZ.

Donald E. Thorin, Cinematographer on 'Purple Rain,' Dies at 81

The Hollywood Reporter

Mike Barnes 12 hrs ago

Donald E. Thorin, the cinematographer on such films as An Officer and a Gentleman, the Prince starrer Purple Rain and Scent of a Woman, has died. He was 81.

Thorin died Feb. 9 at his home in Tucson, Ariz., his son, Donald E. Thorin Jr., told The Hollywood Reporter. Thorin Jr. is a cinematographer as well, with credits including the TV shows Alias, Cold Case and Blue Bloods.

On working on Purple Rain, Thorin Jr. said his father "loved doing that one. He really melded with Prince on the film."

Odie Henderson, in a piece for RogerEbert.com, watched the movie in 2014 on its 30th anniversary and wrote: "Until this viewing, I'd completely forgotten how well Purple Rain is shot. Cinematographer Donald Thorin … earned his paycheck on the musical numbers alone. The concert footage is awe-inspiring, both in shot composition and lighting, and somehow Thorin makes Prince's goofiest dramatic moments look polished and glossy."

What killed Prince? Search warrant served on singer's pharmacy



Wonderwall

By Mark Gray

Prince's cause of death is still a bit of a mystery, but authorities are zeroing in on the pharmacy that the singer often used, hoping that it could provide some clues.

Authorities served a search warrant on a Walgreens near Paisley Park, where the singer lived. There are multiple reports that Prince frequented the drug store and made four runs there on the week that he died.

TMZ has reported that authorities are really interested in the singer's medical records, specifically in his potential intake of Percocet, which it reports he overdosed on just a few days prior to his death. They're also looking for other prescriptions in Prince's name or identifiable aliases.

Investigators are also looking for other pharmacies that Prince may have used, as well as doctors who perhaps prescribed him medication.

Million Prince Albums & Songs Have Been Sold Following His Death


Billboard

Keith Caulfield 9 hrs ago

Prince's albums and songs have sold over 4 million copies in the U.S. since his death on April 21, according to Nielsen Music.

That sum combines his sales on April 21 (239,000 albums and 1.034 million song downloads), along with initial sales reports for the days of April 22-27 (496,000 albums and 2.24 million songs).

In the tracking week before his death, Prince's music sold comparably little: just 5,000 albums and 14,000 song downloads in the week ending April 15.

Prince's Estate: Lawyers Tally Late Star's Assets, Debts Behind Closed Doors

6:11 AM PDT 5/9/2016  by  The Associated Press


Prince
Getty Images


Estate attorneys unconnected to the case say they have a pretty good idea what's happening, starting with a careful accounting of the megastar's assets, debts and whether any unknown heirs exist.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prince left behind no known will when he died April 21, and the work of settling his multimillion-dollar estate is being carried out behind closed doors by tight-lipped lawyers.

~Snipped~

Some questions and answers about untangling the estate of an artist who industry experts say will continue earning millions after his death:

What's happening?

In the days since Bremer Trust was named special administrator of the estate, the company likely has been tallying up the assets Prince left behind — financial accounts, real estate, recording catalog and the unreleased recordings in his vault at Paisley Park. It will also tackle the complicated job of trying to put a value on them. The company has been working to verify who Prince's heirs are and determine what creditors are owed. And it's still trying to dig up any will, trust documents or estate plan.

Who are the heirs?

Assuming there is no will or trust — and several experts say it's too early to be sure there isn't — Minnesota law is clear on who inherits Prince's estate: his sister Tyka Nelson and his half-siblings. That is, unless it turns out he has an unknown child. Nelson's initial filing identified five surviving half-siblings, but another person, Illinois resident Darcell Gresham Johnston, is claiming to be a half-sister. Court papers identify Johnston only as "an interested party and beneficiary in this matter."
